Weekly Forecast ~ Week of December 24th
If you celebrate Christmas it’s here! The full moon last weekend was tense but things simmer down as we move into Christmas and New Years. It’s a good time of year to pause and reflect. Think about what you harvested over the past year and think about what seeds you intend to plant in the coming year. That’s what astrological winter is all about! Let your fields lie fallow in preparation for planting in the spring.
Monday December 24th ~ Christmas Eve
Moon in Cancer void-of-course at 8:50 AM CST
Moon enters Leo at 10:58 AM CST
Mercury square Neptune
I actually have Mercury square Neptune in my natal chart so I really do know something about this. At worst it’s delusional thinking. At best it’s magical thinking. What’s the difference, you ask? It’s a fine line that’s almost impossible to see, as with everything Neptunian, but it’s there and as you practice in this area you can get the feel of things. Are you fooling yourself? Or are you creating a new reality through the thoughts you think and the words you say? There is an inherent magic in our thoughts and words so keep that in mind as you go about your day and be mindful of the power of both your deliberate messages as well as your subconscious messages. Pay attention. This aspects tempts you to go off script but be cognizant of what it is you really want to manifest in your life.
Tuesday December 25th ~
Moon in Leo
Merry Christmas! The sunny Leo moon adds appreciation and warmth to a day devoted to family and sharing generosity with one another, whether that is through gifts or shared meals or simply good intentioned company. Do what you can to help others feel appreciated and this will allow you to feel appreciated, too.
Wednesday December 26th ~
Moon in Leo void-of-course at 9:36 AM CST
Moon enters Virgo at 11:40 PM CST
We have easy lunar aspects only today so we should feel like things are a breeze. Life flows. We can move from one thing to the next without obstacles coming up to block us. It’s good energy for relaxing but also for clearing up and cleaning out from yesterday’s festivities.
Thursday December 27th ~
Moon in Virgo
The Virgo moon loves to spend time in nature. If you have the chance today that would be an amazing thing to go do. I am in California this week and going somewhere like Muir Woods or Point Reyes would be great ideas for an activity for today. If you can’t get outside you can do some purging and clearing and organizing, all of which the Virgo moon enjoys as well.
Friday December 28th
Moon in Virgo void-of-course at 10:27 AM CST
Moon enters Libra at 2:23 PM CST
Venus sextile Pluto
With Venus in a sextile aspect to Pluto today we feel beautiful,sensual, and able to recognize the attraction of the shadow. The world is made up of a combination of light and shadows. Without the shadows we would not have the same level of depth and complexity in life. Depth and complexity add interest and today is a day where we can see how special those extras dimensions of our lives are, even if we don’t always appreciate such things.
Saturday December 29th ~
Moon in Libra
It’s a harmonious day with the moon in lovely Libra. Libra is an air sign so appreciates intellectual pursuits. Libra is also focused on relationships so spend some time with your partner, a good friend, or a close family member. Enjoy the company and remember that for Libra it’s more important to have everyone get along than to be right about something. So can’t we all just get along?
Sunday December 30th ~
Moon in Libra void-of-course at 4:53 PM CST
Moon enters Scorpio at 7:23 PM CST
It’s another mellow day as we prepare to welcome the new year over the next couple of days. With the moon in Libra most of the day we can relax and enjoy the harmony. When the moon enters Scorpio in the evening we might start to feel a little intensity grow but it’s still on the side of chill as long as you can keep yourself there, too!
